Explore Harold Court Woods
(Average user rating: 4 unrated 4/5)

Thames Chase Cyclists at Pages WoodAt Harold Court Woods the walking is easy, the pace is relaxed and there’s often someone about to stop and chat to – it’s a friendly community green space.

Stroll around the 3.3km of surfaced paths, or make the most of 2.6km of cycle paths and 1.3km of bridlepaths. Stretches of woodland and grassland rise to 150 foot at its highest point where a sculpted wooden seat offers a comfortable and stylish view west, across London. Keep walking along this trail through Ivy Lodge Lane and you can safely cross over to Pages Wood, for a further 6.5km of walking or cycling (additional 2.2km for horses).

Over 40,000 trees have been planted here including an ‘Apostle’s Circle’ where ten horse chestnuts ring a central tree to represent Christ and his disciples.

The site has its own car park and is easily accessed from under the mainline rail bridge on Harold Court Road.

Situated just off Harold Wood Park. Used a lot by runners and situated just behind our residence its a great place to explore and walk and connect with other sites near by.
